Edge wore a thicker knit Beanie. Any word on Adam's stage attire?

OH NO SOMEONE ATTACKED U2 YOU BETTER BLINDLY JUMP TO THE BAND'S DEFENCE!!!

Look, of course the crowd reacted well - their own flag was there! But U2.com mentioned there was going to be some change to Streets, and this is a monumental anticlimax. I was wondering if it would be a new segue or some modified musical style. But no, some flags are changed. So what? I don't go to concerts to look at visuals. The music's what matters. (Which is part of the reason why I don't care that the Streets red background is gone this tour. I don't need red lighting to get the Streets effect. For me, the whole effect comes from the music.)

Adam sang, Bono played the drums, Edge played the bass, and Larry played the guitar.

i dont wanna get pissed off, but this isn't really a change at all is it? I, like Axver, thought that there would be a different intro, or a reworking a la Popmart. I can't help but feel that apart from Bad, that setlist from last night is an anticlimax even from U2.

Of course if you are there it's great, it's U2!
